Govt pursuing double standards: Shabir Shah
Srinagar, Jan 1: The chairman of Democratic Freedom Party Shabir Ahmad Shah accused the government of pursuing the policy of double standards while dealing with protesters.
“In Delhi the protestors are being confronted with the water cannons while in Kashmir they are showered bullets by the armed forces,” said Shah while addressing a public meeting at Petipora, Pulwama, in south Kashmir today.
“After being put under house arrest for some days in the aftermath of Pulwama firing incident, Shah Tuesday succeeded in reaching to Petipura, Pulwama, where he paid tributes to Shaheed Imtiyaz Ahmad and expressed his sympathy with the bereaved family,” said a spokesman of the Party in a statement today.
“After that Shabir Ahmad Shah tried to go to Shopian where he was to meet the injured people but was confronted by the armed forces near Lassipora and arrested”, the statement added.
